DOHA GP Q1
The first round in the afternoon saw the Italian rider battling against adverse weather conditions, having to juggle wind and sand. A parallel situation was repeated in the evening in qualifying.
Lorenzo Baldassarri, who in FP3 continued the work started yesterday in terms of setup, in qualifying put in place the changes of the last two days and the sensations were positive. Unfortunately, also because of a group of riders that obstructed his tourning, the Italian was not able to express his potential as he could, stopping the clock at 2’00.738. Lorenzo will start tomorrow from the ninth row, to attempt a comeback race.
Lorenzo Baldassarri #7
“The balance of the day is not the best, although I must say that we have improved the feeling on the bike in windy conditions. Despite this, unfortunately we are still paying a lot on the straight and on the run. We are aware that we still have to work on the turning, in fact in T4 we lose time and on a track like this it becomes complicated to recover. Despite this, I feel good on the bike and the feeling is improving. It’s a shame about today because I was hoping to be more competitive, but we always give our best and we will try to do always better”.
